How To Make a Glass Coffee Table

Making your own glass coffee table provides you with a truly custom piece of furniture. The process does require some skill, but if you take your time, it can be done. Here are some tips for how to make a glass coffee table.


  • Table Top: Choose a piece of glass for your table top. Try to find thick glass that will be able to withstand any heavy objects that you might put on it.
  • Table Legs: You can purchase metal legs or you can make your own out of wood.
  • Drill: To attach the legs to the table top.
  • Saw: To cut the wood for the legs.
  • Paintbrush: To apply a protective coating to the legs.
  • Sandpaper: To sand down the edges and surfaces of the legs (if you make them yourself).


  1. Measure the dimensions you need for the table top. Cut the glass to the desired size and shape. For a truly custom look, consider having a glass shop cut the glass for you.
  2. If you are making the legs yourself, use the saw to cut the pieces of wood to the desired height. Assemble the legs and attach them to the glass table top. Use the drill to securely attach the legs.
  3. Apply a protective coating to the legs. This will help to protect them from water damage or other elements.
  4. Sand down the edges and surfaces of the legs (if you made them yourself).
  5. Place the table top on the legs, making sure the fit is secure.
  6. Place your coffee table in the desired room. Enjoy your custom piece!

By following these steps you should be able to make your own glass coffee table. Making your own coffee table allows you to customize it and make it fit perfectly into your home.
